A company that calls itself North America's largest distributor of primary packaging is getting bigger in Europe.
TricorBraun is acquiring Neville and More Ltd. of Horsham, England, a distributor of plastic, glass and aluminum packaging for the health care, pharmaceutical, personal care and food and beverage segments.
